I am looking for information on Pierre Boudet of Rochefort between 1675 and 1740. He had a brother Jean Boudet who married Madeleine Jolivet. Their father was Jacques Boudet and the mother was Mandee Fallourd of Doix. They lived for a period of time in Montreuil-sur-mer. Pierre was born there and moved to Rochefort when he was about 13.
Pierre Boudet in 1710 married Genevieve Louise Montesson (records have it spelled various ways!) Some list her as Louise Genevieve. She was the daughter of Etienne Montesson and Anthoinette Frin or Frinn There is a G. Montessont who witnesses the wedding of Pierre and Genevieve, so that is probably the correct spelling. Pierre was approximately 20 years old when he married.
Pierre was a merchant and ship owner who had extensive dealings with Canada, Louisiana, and Saint Domingue from 1740 on, working out of La Rochelle. He may have had another son named Pierre who continued trade with Saint Domingue in 1760 and later worked with Compagnie de les Indes.
I know Pierre and Genevieve had at least two other sons -- Francois Victor Boudet who went to Saint Domingue and had a sugar plantation. This Francois was born in 1724 and baptized in St. Louis church in Rochefort. The older brother, Noel Francois Boudet was born in 1712. I am wondering if he is the one that ended up in Santiago de Cuba.
Any information about this family would be greatly appreciated.
